Description

Ground-up almonds take the place of flour in this dense, chocolatey cake, which is inflected with almond and vanilla extracts. Meanwhile, egg whites are whipped until stiff peaks form and then folded back into the batter to keep it airy. After baking, the resulting cake is fudgy and rich, requiring nothing more than a sprinkle of powdered sugar before it's served. However, you can opt to frost or ice if, if you'd like.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams almonds
  • 200 grams sugar
  • 200 grams plain chocolate
  • 200 grams butter
  • 5 eggs (separated)
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Using a food processor, crush the almonds with the sugar.
  3. In the microwave, melt the chocolate with the butter.
  4. In a bowl, beat the egg yolks. Add the almond and vanilla extracts, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  5. Whisk the egg whites until stiff and add to the egg yolk mixture.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes. Then, reduce heat to 170 C and bake for 40 minutes.
  7. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
